We Must All Care
On the north side of Chicago, Daniel Calder is a high school history teacher mourning the death of his husband, Dr. Harrison Brennan, an African American doctor who was shot while unarmed by a white cop. As Daniel tries to comfort their grieving daughter, Jira Calder-Brennan, the two butt heads. On the south side, Tia Young scours news of the shooting, torn between her political ambition of running for alderman and risking it all to comfort Jira, the daughter she gave up for adoption as a teen. On the west side, police officer Paul Evans must face the reality of his actions and intentions in the fatal shooting of an innocent man. As the stories of the Calder, Young and Evans families converge, they each discover that it’s important for each of us to explore how our backgrounds and internal biases affect how we act.
